Abstract

Many patients with localized prostate cancer are eligible for more than one treatment option. Currently, both radical prostatectomy (RP) and radiotherapy (RT) are the key treatment options in organ-confined disease. In this review, we provide an overview about oncologic outcomes of both therapy modalities. Additionally, we review studies about patients’ quality of life after therapy as well as common side effects of both therapeutic options.
